For families, moving possessions safely is important, but attending to childrens needs and feelings about the move is vital. Since children rely on predictable routines, a move can be very disconcerting to them. Although parents can talk to their children about the move in language that kids can understand, parents still should prepare for some potential behavior changes after the transition to their new home.

Some children may not fully understand that the move is permanent until they no longer see familiar sites and friends. Others may initially find spending time in their new rooms uncomfortable and unsettling.
